Sol Bailey – Barker
SOL BAILEY BARKER
Sol Bailey-Barker is a British multi-disciplinary artist working primarily with sculpture, sound and performance. Informed by the development of technologies that were for millennia seen as shamanic for their transformative power upon the landscape and their influence over life and death, Bailey-Barker’s practice follows this journey of body-hacking and augmentation from the ancient sacred axe to contemporary prosthetics and machinery.
Bailey-Barker’s abstract sculptures draw from symbolism and objects he studies, using materials associated with both agriculture and industry to provoke an association between the industrial born from technological development and its ancient spiritual origins.
